E-Line

The Phono Box E BT has been designed to offer high-quality wireless audio transmission from any turntable with a Moving Magnet (MM) cartridge installed. 

Using the same coveted phono pre-amplification circuitry as the Phono Box E, the Phono Box E BT functions just like an ordinary phono stage with precise RIAA equalisation, RCA inputs and a Line level output (3.5mm stereo jack). However, the clever internal design also allows it to take the audio signal it receives and stream it via high-quality Bluetooth transmission. With a range of 10m, this effectively allows for the turntable to be positioned at the focal point in a room, away from where your main audio system might be. 

The pairing process is effortlessly simple and super-fast, for easy set-up within minutes of opening the box. The stylish housing - available in black or white - is shielded with a metal interior, which protects the unit against vibrations and radio frequency interferences. There's also an additional 3.5mm stereo jack Line input, for transmitting other analogue devices, as well as your turntable. 

The Phono Box E BT is the ultimate lifestyle accessory for vinyl fans who want their turntable to take centre stage. Combine your vinyl passion with ultra-modern wireless audio.

FAQ

What is a Phono Stage?

A phono stage takes the low-level electrical signal, generated by the pick-up cartridge on your turntable, and amplifies it to LINE level. When it's at LINE level, you can connect the outputs of your phono stage to any LINE or AUX input on your amplifier. If you do not have a phono stage, when you connect the turntable to your amplifier the signal will be very quiet, and if you turn it up to normal listening level it will sound distorted and noisy. 

You do not need an external phono stage if...

  • There is a phono stage already built-in to your turntable (for instance with our Phono USB or RecordMaster turntables from Pro-Ject)
  • Your amplifier has a Phono input.

In both of these cases, the built-in phono stage needs to support your pick-up cartridge (see below).


Do I need a specific type of Phono Stage?

Yes. You need to buy a phono stage that suits your particular type of cartridge. If you have a Moving Magnet (MM) cartridge, you need an MM-compatible phono stage. If you have a Moving Coil (MC) cartridge, you need an MC-compatible phono stage. This is due to the different output levels of MM and MC cartridges (as MC cartridges are so quiet, they require more Gain).
